Defective Drug Lawyers Protecting the Victims of Pradaxa Internal Bleeding
Pradaxa was first approved for use in the United States in October 2010 to prevent strokes in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.Atrial fibrillation is a health condition common in elderly patients.It causes the heart to beat irregularly, thus increasing an individuals chance of getting blood clots and suffering from a stroke.Pradaxa belongs to a class of medications called direct thrombin inhibitors, which work by blocking a clotting enzyme in the patients bloodstream.In some cases, the inhibition of the enzyme may work to the detriment of the patient.If a patient who has been taking Pradaxa suffers from a serious bleeding event, their blood can fail to clot.This can result in gastro-intestinal bleeds, causing the hospitalization of the patient and sometimes leading to the patient bleeding to death.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
